HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Lake Lenape was lowered Monday afternoon for routine inspections at the dam, police said.

Water levels will be dropped 2-3 feet by the end of the week. The lake will remain low through December.

Lakefront residents can use this time to perform property maintenance but should secure boats and docks appropriately in the next few days, police said.
